Abstract

According to the decision of the 34th DAC meeting in Thessalonica, Eurocurriculum II is fully based on the Chemistry Eurobachelor model. 5 credit points (CP’s) is allocated to physics requirements for the degree of the European Chemical Thematic Network (ECTN) Chemistry Eurobachelor. Physics is introduced as a basic module of introductory courses. The proposed workload factors correspond to those of chemistry, which amounts to 3 for lectures, 2 for seminars and 1 for practices. By taking into account a workload of 25 hours per credit, the number of credits and the workload factors, the total number of contact (teaching) hours amounts to 75. These hours are devoted to fundamentals of physics that enables the student to understand the principles of functionality of laboratory equipment and allow the student to operate such instruments at the user level. Details of the contents comprise elements of the following subjects: Classical mechanics, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, elementary particles, radiation, fluid dynamics, spectros-copy, diffraction, crystallography, scattering and electromagnetism. Further details, as to the contents and to contemporary principles of pedagogy, will be provided and discussed.
